My Hair Takes Really Well To A Perm!
It's been 1 month since I walked out of a salon with a perm so tight the only thing the stylist could do was try to convince me it would relax and I just needed to get use to it. Tears all the way home! Why don't stylists listen when you say, as I did several times over, "my hair takes really well to a perm and shouldn't be left in for more than 1/2 the time?" I went home and washed it three times. Then, because the perm brought out all of my grey, I colored it. Hey, if my hair fell out it would have looked better!
I went on the net to discover this One 'N Only Curl Remover was the only product available. I read every review because I was afraid it might make my hair look worse (not really possible) Thank you all for your informative reviews. I hope the following helps others.
I am a white woman with fine hair but it is thick/dense. My hair has some wave to it if I let it dry naturally. I decided to wait 1 week, although I read others had done this sooner. But, after the perm and then coloring it, I thought it best to wait a week. I gave myself a hot oil treatment the night before and had my husband help me comb the ONO through my hair.(if you can, get a woman to help you!). I left the 1st step on for 15 minutes the 2nd for 5-7 mins. combing it constantly from the root, which was my highest concern, to the ends. It worked! My hair was a little dry but nothing I can't live with until I can go back for a cut. I still need to blow dry it straight and use a good cream rinse (which worked better than the leave in one my salon gave me.)which seems to do the trick. I also use a flat iron on it just so it will look at little less frizzy. I'm use to having smooth shiny hair so I may notice the little frizzies more than others would. I've used hot olive oil twice since that night and after I colored my hair again last wee.it grows out quickly, it was so soft!
I went right out and bought another bottle just in case I need to reapply. I read where a few have had to do this but I believe this is for people with naturally curly hair and not permed.
Hope this helps dry some tears!
